Throughout the past year I have received emails asking me about my actual ethnicity. People seem curious as to why I blog so much about Romanian designers despite having a middle eastern name while living in Canada.
I have never revealed my true origins on this blog but since so many of you have an interest in my roots, well it's time I give you a bit of background about myself.
I was born in Romania 24 years ago to a Romanian mother and an Iranian father. My father was an international student studying engineering in Romania and met my mother in university. After graduation, he decided to settle in Romania and start a family there. At the age of 12, my family decided to immigrate to Canada in search for a better and safer life away from the dangers of post-communist Romania.
I speak fluent Romanian although my writing is terrible yet only mildly understand Farsi without being able to communicate more than 10 words.
So now you have a bit of background as to who I am!
